Yet he is paid 5 percent, forsupervision. The accounts before them were passed by the com mittee last Monday night, and were signed by Mr. Howitt and Mr. Hender son, hut only that day Mr. Ashman had been out and signed them. He' (Cr.

BAND CONTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 March 1914

BAND CONTEST. There was the novelty in Northcote on Thursday evening of a brass band con test. The event took place at the Croxton recreation reserve. There wns only a moderate attendance, due largely, no doubt, to the very threatening state of the weather about the time people would be assembling. Three bands competed, and it was the general opinion that their performances, which were of u highly enjoyable character, were of pretty even merit. This was reflected in the judge's verdict. He allotted the points as follows:— 1. Eastern District United 150 points. 2. Northcote Municipal Band 150 points. 3. Brunswick City Band U9 points. Mr. H. Hellings was the conductor of both the first and second bands, whilst Mr. It. Davis wielded the baton for Brunswick City. The competition march—a bright and entertaining piece ; of music—was the composition of Mr. Hellings father. • | Granting that full publicity was given to it a band competition on a larger ' scale than the above would be u grea...

"MAKING NIGHT HIDEOUS." TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 March 1914

"MAKING NIGHT HIDEOUS." TO TUB GD1TOK. Sir,—The residents of Westgarth street, from the railway station on towards Fairfield, have been long suffer ing to a band of young fellows, who, every Friday and Saturday night—pre sumably after the hotels are closed march along the street, "making night hideous" by bellowing at the top of their voices, and braying out snatches of song—quite innocent of melody, and • probably of morals. That they disturb the rest of young children, and the great number of tired and weary toilers, apparently does not concern them, so they weekly repeat their performance without intermission. As we are only favored with a police officer, say on the nccasion of a football or cricket match, or in gathering Commonwealth statis tics, we would deem it a favor if you* would, through the medium of .your paper, draw the attention of the custo dians of the peace to .this matter.— Yours, &c., Repose:

. STREET OR ROAD? To tho Editor. Sir,—Adverting to your remarks in the "Leader" of the 17th January, 191<1, about my letter" to the Northcote coun cil against their altering the name of Darebin road to "Darebin street," I . noticed that in your, last issue you used the name "Dareljin street," as if you recognise the. change of. name to be." permanently decided upon by the -coun- _ cii; Cr.' Redmond told me it had been decided to call. all..the- thoroughfares-. streets. . If so .why confine ;thti-i altera tion to Darebin road when there is.Sl. George's road, Beaver's road and others? At first Darebin road was put on tlis name plate at its junction with' High street, and, later, Darebin street on tlie plate at Alexandra street, opposite my residence; thinking this to be the pain-, ter's mistake, I altered the word street to road. Subsequently, it was substitu- * ted for road at High street, thinking probably that I might take the trouble to alter that also. I fee! sorry to ...
